is that? given all of the publicity around the more tenuous relationship between benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister, and this president. it seems to me that they each were echoing, you know, tremendous friendship and warmth between them. >> well, i think you have to look at a visit like this as having two parts. one part focuses on what are the very hard, practical issues and realities that have to be confronted? and having in a sense more understanding about how you're going to proceed to deal with those issues. whether it's iran, whether it's syria, which is going to be, i think, a more immediate challenge than people had thought. whether it's the arab awakening, whether it's the palestinians. on one level, there is this very hard headed practical approach where you try to come to understandings. at another level, there's the whole question of what's the emotional connection? what is the kind of psychological bond or links that exist. because when you make decisions, obviously they take place in a context. i think what you're seeing right now, both in what the two men said but

in israel and the first thawing the often frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu. is it a turning point in the region? let's ask dan henninger and global view columnist bret stevens. so, bret, the big news out of this, or at least at the surface, that a new good feeling between prime minister y netanyahu and president obama. real or does it makes a difference? >> real, and it's definitely good in terms of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement with the palestinians. he's clearly, john kerry, the secretaries of state made this a priority or wanted to.
: when the president goes to israel and talking about bridging the divide with benjamin netanyahu, who is still cobbling together the last piece of the coalition government, will anything change? obviously you're no stranger to the ill will between our countries and that is supposed to be a fence, building effort. >> well, i'm all about end results and not about words and trips. it's amazing to me that this is the president's first trip. he went to turkey and gave a speech. he went to saudi araina, cairo and made his speech about reaching out and building bridged with the muslim world. now we see israel in the neighborhood that is absolutely unconscionable and threatening to its security. so, the faith behind the doors, nicolas sarkozy, the way treated prime minister benjamin netanyahu previously, i don't think anything will change. the president saying we're moving our embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem and recognize that jerusalem is the rightful capital but if you go back to the dnc convention, they had to add back into their convention platform that they would even recognize the ri

message to prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as the people of israel and other people in the region that he stands firmly with israel. as you know, the president and the prime minister have had a somewhat rocky relationship. so it's partially to smooth over that relationship. the president has taken some criticism, particularly during the last presidential campaign, that he wasn't a strong enough ally to israel. i think part of it will be to smooth over that perception. but i think you will see the president reiterate the fact the united states will do whatever is necessary to make sure that iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon. of course, that is a big concern for israel and will also sort of reiterate the united states will try to continue to isolate syria and to make sure that at some point assad does step down from power soon. so i think those are two of the key issues you're going to hear him talk about. also, martin, this is not just a trip to talk to the leaders. according to a recent poll in israel, 10% of israelis view the president favorably. so i thing hek he's

benjamin netanyahu and visited a tex sch show where israeli engineers showed them a snake-like contraption that shgoes in smal spaces and shows them what's going on in those small spaces. and he visited the and met with palestinian president abbas. that was all by lunchtime and then spoke at a convention center before an audience of more than 2,000 israelis. most of the audience was made up of college students but government officials and civil leaders in the audience. shortly after beginning his remarks, the president as i mentioned was heckled. he responded by saying the heckler made him feel right at home. one advantage of having, you lie, screamed at you during a speech during congress is heckling probably never rattles you again. the crowd give him standing ovation in response to the heckler and cheered with approval at this point in the speech. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideologically of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or sky above because israel's not going anywher anywhere. >> it makes sense that these young israe
there and accomplished what he intended to, namely to smooth over relations with prime minister benjamin netanyahu, to reach out to the israeli people and reaffirm the united states' commitment to them and also sent a message that peace talks should resume. so he sort of got that process, the start of that process under way. of course, peace talks haven't resumed yet. that was one of the president's key goals of his first administration. he wasn't able to do it. i think if he doesn't do it during the second term, he will see that as a failing. i've been talking to some experts in the region who say that, you know, the president has sort of given his secretary of state john kerry the lead on that. secretary kerry engaged on getting the peace talks resumed. the experts say the president needs to remain engaged if he wants to see that really happen. the people are going to watch the president closely to see what he does in the coming weeks to see if he can make progress on that point. >> kristen, what struck me about the tactic the president took on this trip was also to shore up -- we can't undersco

as president and sits down with benjamin netanyahu. from the beginning the united states has had extremely good cooperation on the intelligence front from the israeli government. obviously, they are in the neighborhood, syria's neighbor to the south. they have a much better picture here, not only of the state of play with the assad regime and its stability. the sources say a few more months at best for assad, but also the movement of chemical weapons. that exchange of information is critical from the united states' standpoint. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of
